  2. In a large bowl combine pumpkin, evaporated milk, eggs, brown sugar, pumpkin spice, vanilla until well blended
  3. Pour into 9×13 baking dish
  4. Sprinkle dry cake mix over pumpkin mixture
  5. Place the small pieces of butter over the cake mix, as evenly as possible( as they melt, they will spread out)
